35-c.    HOW THE DfiVADAYAS PASSED INTO THE HANDS
OF THE RAYA.

Originally when there was one ruler over all the lands of
Cera. Sola and Paiidya Mandates, and then when there were
three tings ruling over the three mandalas, in fact, till the
Saka year 1219, Aksaya, the kings did not control the
devadaya and brahmadaya lands, but left them under the control
of the Brahmans and only enquired into complaints received
regarding their administration and nieted out justice duly.
Then the lluhammadans came, laid waste the devadaya and
and the deity had to seek refuge in gardens and other places till
he came back to Srirangam in Saka 1293, Parltapi; then, all these
mandalas came under the Raya, who was the Narapati; and the
Raya and his servants, viz., the many commanders of forts
made gifts of many villages with libations of water and began
to administer the tiruvidaiyattam lands which were devadanas in
the same way as they administered the palace lands
(araamanai-calrmai) by appointing in Srirangam as their own
servants a maiiiyam and a samprati.
